Doctor Who Does Narnia: On Ice! is the series 7 Christmas special. Not that one, the one that came before it. The production codes of christmas specials don't make a lot of sense.
Get Off This Planet or whatever molests the hell out of some children (like it's not even funny), shows them a magical box that can take them anywhere: television. They go to one of the planets in the Androzani empire, where, surprise surprise, they're doing shady things with natural resources. We get it, Dune was popular, god. Some trees get all uppity, a woman unironically called "Madge" shows that having once heard about how Avro Lancasters were flown is enough to teach her how to drive an AT-AT and also a forest spaceship, and the day is saved by the power of vaginas.
The Doctor, The Widow, and the Wardrobe is notable in only one respect: The Doctor was calling himself the Caretaker. The woman's husband was rescued and dragged through time by the alien spacecraft, and there weren't actually any wardrobes in the entire special, so really the entire title was a lie. Bravo Moffat.
Literally forgotten as soon as the credits started rolling.
Reminder: This is what Doctor Who fans had to tide them over until September.
